This is just a test. If it were a real post, Steve Shaw would be lambasting its point of origin. :swear:

Pinocchio deals with cricket.
http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/16865

Quote:
At these last words Pinocchio jumped up in a rage and, snatching a wooden hammer from the bench, he threw it at the Talking-Cricket.

Perhaps he never meant to hit him, but unfortunately it struck him exactly on the head, so that the poor Cricket had scarcely breath to cry "Cri-cri-cri!" and then he remained dried up and flattened against the wall.
